This paper presents a Grid infrastructure that is being developed at the Space Research Institute NASU-NSAU, and integrates the resources of several geographically distributed organizations. The use of Grid technologies is motivated by the need to make computations in the near real-time for fast response to natural disasters and to manage large volumes of satellite data. We use the Grid infrastructure for a number of applications that heavily rely on Earth observation data. The applications include: weather prediction, flood monitoring, biodiversity assessment, crop yield prediction, and Earth land parameters estimation.
Keywords: data volumes, Grid infrastructure, monitoring
